Join Us For A Ride!
Missoulians on Bicycles (MOBI) wel-
comes all cyclists to join us on our
weekend rides. Rides get progressive-
ly longer as we move into the spring.
Ride leaders are listed in the schedule
and may be contacted to discuss the
ride details and route. We encourage
new riders to join us on one of our
events. After your first ride, if you
would like to continue to ride with us,
our insurance coverage requires that
you join our group. Check our web-
site for updates on group rides and
other events.
